Audio Commentary by cinematographer Jost Vacano "Making Of Total Recall" feature "Imagining Total Recall" 30 minute feature "Visions of Mars" feature "The World of Science Fiction Literature" documentary Virtual Vacations Storyboard/ Film Comparisons Photo Gallery Conceptual Artwork Teasers and Trailers

From Amazon.co.uk

Total Recall, director Paul Verhoeven's mega-budget sci-fi action blockbuster from 1990, began its production life as a very different movie. An adaptation of the Philip K. Dick short story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale", it was originally conceived of with Richard Dreyfuss starring as a Walter-Mitty-like character who experiences a variety of artificially induced fantasies. But with Arnold Schwarzenegger on board, the final version took a rather different direction. The Austrian Oak plays a normal working man who discovers his entire reality has been invented to conceal a scheme for planetary domination on Mars. Oscar-winning special effects and violent action propel the twisting plot, in which Arnold manipulates his manipulators in a world of dazzling high technology. Verhoeven (Robocop, Starship Troopers) indulges his usual penchant for gratuitous bloodshed, but the movie has enough cleverness to rise above its excesses. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

On the DVD: Not many extras, but excellent picture and sound. The reds of Mars are a terrific way of testing your television's colour definition in this digital transfer. Combine that with testing your speakers in the opening scene to Jerry Goldsmith's pounding score boosted to Dolby 5.1, and what an ideal home cinema demo disc this is! Two trailers show the way a film should and shouldn't be advertised, since the teaser gives nothing away but the main advert tells you everything. A seven-minute behind the scenes featurette with cast interviews and on-set action rounds out the extras package. --Paul Tonks --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I see this product has one review by a sadly misguided soul who thinks this is a bad grainy transfer. First of all, this is the same transfer as the excellent HD DVD version, also the pitch problem has been fixed too. I had owned the US artisan release on Blu-ray prior to this and this is a big improvement on that transfer. The disc is coded region A,B. The sound is 5.1 DTS HD master audio. Due to the lack of any extras it misses the final star for my review. However, in terms of image and sound quality, This is the best version available of this cracking film.

Perhaps the first of Arnold Schwarzenegger's 'attempts' at playing a Bond-style character : and it's rather a good one.

A lowly construction worker, Douglas Quaid (Schwarzenegger), decides to visit a vacation parlour to 'make his dreams come true' - despite being persuaded not to by his colleague, Harry (Robert Costanzo).

This has disastrous consequences : a severe malfunction takes place causing the worst to happen - Quaid's memory had been 'wiped out' as he was a spy/secret agent on Mars, a plan that was done to prevent any details about Mars being revealed to anyone.

Dumped in a cab travelling home, Quaid is soon confronted by four men (Harry being one of them), and a revelation by Harry says that he played Quaid's 'guardian angel', before anything else takes place, Quaid kills all four men in no time at all.

Near having a 'breakdown', Quaid tells his supposed wife Lori (Sharon Stone) of the said incident, soon after Quaid is attacked - by Lori - who soon reveals that she was a 'mole' to make sure that Quaid's memory was completely wiped out.

Seeing that Lori's associates Ied by Richter (Michael Ironside) are on their way, Lori is knocked out by Quaid. Chasing Quaid through a train station, Richter misses his target when Quaid escapes by boarding a train.

Seeing enemies from all directions, an unlikely saviour comes in the form of Melina (Rachel Ticotin) who was a one time lover of Quaid's, eventually (a little reluctant) helps him after a number of agents ultimately led by dictator Vilas Cohaagen (Ronny Cox) are killed in combat by a 'resistance leader' George/Kuato (Marshall Bell).

REVIEWED VERSION: 2005 Momentum Pictures 2 Disc Special Edition UK DVD

Director: Paul Verhoeven

Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rachel Ticotin, Michael Ironside, Ronny Cox, Sharon Stone

SYNOPSIS

Douglas Quaid (Arnold Schwarzenegger) buys a 2 week virtual vacation from Rekall Inc., which is basically an implanted memory. He books the additional "ego trip" package, which gives him the identity of a secret agent.
Something goes horribly wrong though. When he snaps out of the "dream" the Rekall Inc. employees dump him in a cab. Then the real fun starts as everybody he knows (and some folks he doesn't) is trying to kill him.

THE PROS & CONS

Loosely based on Philip K. Dick's short story "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale", this 1990 production is a really good action/sci-fi movie directed by Paul Verhoeven.
The story is brilliant and quite intelligent (far above your average action flick), a secret agent/sci-fi story full of plot twists and surprises with lots of action. It plays with reality in a brilliant way, rather than a cheap way. More than once one asks the question, is this fake or reality.
Decent Schwarzenegger acting here, his typical one-liners are present as are his butt-kickings. He still is a larger-than-life action hero here. Baddies Cohaagen (Ronny Cox) and Richter (Michael Ironside) deliver GREAT performances as usual. Never a dull moment when Ironside's on screen. Sharon Stone has a minor role looking purdy and kicking some butt. Rachel Ticotin is fine as Schwarzenegger's ally, nothing special, though.

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 24 Feb. 2014
Format: DVD
It's like a nightmare out of Kafka: everything you can remember is false, and everything you think you know about your life is a lie. Such is the dilemma at the heart of "Total Recall," which also has the honor of being one of the best movies Arnold Schwarzenegger has ever made. A lot of this comes from the plot, which is full of memorable twists and clever plotting -- not to mention the glorious depiction of a futuristic Mars.

Every night, Douglas Quaid (Schwarzenegger) is haunted by a dream of Mars and a strange woman (Rachel Ticotin). He even wants to visit Mars, but his wife Lori (Sharon Stone) is reluctant. After all, Mars is going through a nasty rebellion at the moment. On impulse, Quaid decides to go to Rekall, a company that implants false memories for entertainment, and selects a "secret agent" fantasy on Mars.

But things instantly go very wrong when he has a convulsive reaction, and ends up dumped in a taxi. As he tries to get home, his coworkers all try to kill him -- and at home, Lori also tries to murder him, revealing that their entire marriage is a false memory.

Quaid goes on the run, with only a cryptic message from his former self to guide him. But even if he can get to Mars and avoid being captured by Lori and the cops, he has to find the mysterious Melina (who turns out to be the lady from his dream). And as he seeks out the mysterious leader of the Resistance, Quaid finds that there may be things in his past he doesn't want to remember...

"Total Recall" doesn't stick very closely to Philip K. Dick's original story, but it doesn't shame it either.
